4 Tips For Finding The Best Phoenix General Contractor
Finding the best Phoenix general contractor for your project doesn’t have to be difficult. You don’t want to hire the very first one you come across because you could end up regretting the decision. Here are a few tips to help you find the best general contractor.
- Get Recommendations – The first thing you want to do is get recommendations from people you know because the chances are you know people who have used a general contractor at some point in time. Another thing you can do is use the internet to find general contractors in your area and/or use the phone book. What you want to do is make a list of at least 5-6 general contractors because the more contractors you have to compare, the better off you’ll be.
- Conduct Phone Interviews – After you have gotten recommendations and you have a list of general contractors, it’s time to compare each one by conducting a phone interview with each of them. You want to find a contractor that can handle a project of your size and you’ll want to see if they’ll give you a list of previous clients they have worked for. If they can’t, they may direct you to their website where you can view their portfolio and this will give you an idea of the quality of work they perform. The best general contractors have portfolios and have no problem telling you how many clients they have worked for.
- Timeline For Completion – The best Phoenix general contractor will have an idea of how long it will take to complete your project, but only after they have learnt what your project entails. Just bear in mind that some contractors may complete jobs faster than others, but this doesn’t mean they are the best. If a contractor says they can complete your project in a short period of time, then check out their past work because if it looks of high quality, then go ahead and hire them. If the work doesn’t seem that impressive or of low quality, then keep looking around for a contractor to hire.
- Read Reviews – Finally, read reviews about the general contractors you’re researching and you want to get an idea of how reliable the contractors are, as well as whether or not people were happy with the work they done. If there’s more positive reviews about contractors than negative ones, then this is fine. However, if there are far more negative reviews about a contractor than there are positive ones, then take this as a red flag and don’t hire them, even if they charge the cheapest rates. Remember, when it comes to your project, you don’t want to choose price over quality. Read American Construction & Renovation’s reviews on our Better Business Bureau (BBB) page.
That is how you find the best general contractors to tackle your project. Just take your time when finding and comparing them and read reviews, conduct phone interviews and get as many recommendations as possible. If you do this, eventually you’ll find the right contractor for your project.
